Roast Pork Shoulder, Suppli and a LIttle Baking

Last just start with the Roast Pork Shoulder. I saw this recipe posted on Living the Gourmet blog and I knew Chris would like this. The last line in the recipe says that "this is a dinner that requires patience and is worth waiting for!" Yes it does require patience, 9 hours in the oven. And it was so worth the wait!
And the taste... well let's just say it was delicious. The only change I made in the recipe was the amount of garlic. I used 2 cloves which was a lot for us! We got so much meat off of the shoulder. And another thing about this recipe is that there is a video for it too! Thank goodness. I felt like I was watching Julia Child on TV and cooking along with her!

To go along with the Roast Pork I made Suppli (Rice Balls). When I made the Aborio Rice last night I made extra so I could make these. I even fried them. So good.... The recipe is from Simple Italian Snacks.

Then there was the bread. Herb and Cheese Bubble Loaf from Frieda Loves Bread.  This was so cool. It is like a Monkey Bread. There are little balls of bread and you just break one off. And then you get another and another...


Now let's go back to earlier in the day... breakfast to be exact. From Oh My! Sugar High -Scrumptious Baked Cinnamon Breakfast Bites. I found this recipe about 4AM as I lay awake checking out Pinterest. I said to myself and Lucy, she kind of woke me up, that I would try to make these for breakfast today. I love the idea of baked donuts. And the cinnamon and sugar reminded me of the cinnamon toast my mom use to make for breakfast!

Catherine this was really an amazing dinner. And the amount of meat we got of the shoulder was alot. I am thinking bbq pork sandwiches with the frozen meat...
